Well then it's a good thing that Buckeyes are returning a two time B1G QB of the year (and two-time All-B1G honoree) who is coming off winning the Silver Football, after having also won B1G Freshman of the year and 3rd Team All-American honors while finishing 5th in the Heisman voting as a freshman.

I second this motion. Bringing in young, talented WRs from the last two classes, as well as moving EGW, hopefully will lead to Campbell getting a shot at the Curtis Samuel position. I'm rooting for McCall, but seeing some rotation at the position (like we were expecting from Samuel/Wilson) would only enhance the offense's chances of success.

Nothing sums up this performance being about effort more than a play that Loving made in the closing minutes. With the Bucks up 16, and the game clearly decided, Wisconsin had a little bit of a break with a man advantage. Loving hustled down court, caught up to the break, and blocked a shot from behind. To me, that's the kind of effort that has been consistently lacking. Granted, it was virtually a meaningless play in a game that was already over, but that's precisely why I loved seeing it.

Honestly, I'm just ready for some football, even if it shatters the illusion the local team will average 500 points this fall (which is fine, 300 points per game would be pretty good too).

Hell, I averaged over 100 points a game on NCAA Football for C360 playing 5 minutes quarters. Based on what they get paid, they should at least double that playing 15 minute quarters. Slackers!!!

I'm choosing to remain cautiously optimistic. Asking them to just win one World Series in my lifetime isn't too much is it? I'm just hoping that we're on the brink of another run like they had in the mid 90s, excepting that this time they're able to enjoy a World Series Champion parade this time.

How can it be that hard to field a team that at least makes the big dance every year?

I love Thad, but this is the thought that's been tumbling around in my head the last two seasons. I understand that the Buckeyes, for the long run, probably can't be UNC, UK, Kansas, or Duke. To these schools, NOTHING is more important than basketball. At OSU, Football will always be the big boy on campus. However, with their resources, facilities, past success, and the volume of obtainable in state talent, there's no reason that the Buckeyes shouldn't be able to win 9-10 B1G games, along with 1-2 in the B1G Tourney and make the field of 64 (68) every single year. I know that there may be a down year here or there, but this program should make the The Dance at least 80% of the time, and virtually never miss it in back to back seasons.

I still think that Thad has earned one more year. If they get off to a bad start next year, then they will start some discussions and searches.

Not arguing that Carman isn't a must get, but an in state player who is ranked as a top 5 LB and #116 overall (247 actually ranks him #1 at his position and #27 overall) nationally is pretty close if you ask me. FWIW, 247 has Carman ranked #2 at his position and #16, overall, so at least a few other people agree. But, hey it's an imperfect science.
